Articles by Professors Teresa Amabile and Cynthia Montgomery named top ten by McKinsey Quarterly


The McKinsey Quarterly has named articles by HBS professors Teresa Amabile and Cynthia Montgomery to its 2012 list of that journal's ten most popular articles. Amabile and her coauthor Steven Kramer were recognized, at number two, for "How Leaders Kill Meaning at Work," an examination of how senior executives routinely undermine creativity, productivity, and commitment by damaging the inner work lives of their employees. The article is based on their book The Progress Principle: Using Small Wins to Ignite Joy, Engagement, and Creativity at Work (Harvard Business Review Press, 2011). Montgomery's article, "How Strategists Lead," at number six, offers her reflections on what she has learned from senior executives about the unique value that strategic leaders can bring to their companies. Montgomery is the author, most recently, of The Strategist: Be the Leader Your Business Needs (Harper Business, 2012).
